murdered-opolis. today, minneapolis mayor r.t. ryeback had strong words for harry reid who would not commit to supporting an asaumt weapons ban. >> i didn't vote for it last night because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> how can harry reid, a fellow democrat and i'm willing to criticize him say he hasn't read the bill. mayor dianne feinstein has been a mayor. she's been in a shooting. she knows why she needs this. let's support the president and get some things done. >> however, momentum does seem to be building behindmost of the president's proposals. "wall street journal" saying the senate democrats include a bill limiting magazine clips and universal background checks despite continuing opposition of the nra. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it is never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >>> and factor this one in. an ad by mayors against illegal guns ran during the super bowl. it pointed out that the nra once supported closing the so-called gun show loophole. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> w
't think you can trust -- >> senate majority leader harry reid says he hopes gun legislation will come out of the judiciary committee but he was noncommittal over whether he would sign an assault weapons ban. >> would you vote for it? >> frankly, she knows, i haven't read her amendment, i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> i will bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and senior staff writer for "the hill" alex bolton. good monday morning to both of you. ruth, this is the president's first big sell to the american people. what do you think he needs to say here? >> well, the president said he was going to give it everything he's got. i think what he needs to say is look, don't listen to the nra, listen to logic or listen to the nra from a number of years ago when it supported universal background checks. i think that there are three issues here in order of likelihood. one is background checks which has huge support and makes complete sense. one is limits on magazine sizes which i completely think the administra
everybody this is at the feet of harry reid in the senate right now to move on this, and he appeared this weekend with abc's george stephanopoulos. take a listen to his thoughts. >> how about restrictions on high capacity magazines for ammunition? >> i think that's something we definitely have to take a look at. >> take a look or vote for? >> let's see what it is. >> sir, in your opinion, do you think that right now the best approach is going to be agreement on both sides of the aisle on small steps and that small step being potential for universal background checks as opposed to talking about the assault style weapons ban and magazine clips? >> well, first, i want to give president obama high marks for continuing to make gun control a top priority of his administration, especially so early on. whenever you talk about gun-related issues, it gets my attention. i was a 16-year-old police cadet when i was in the police locker room one afternoon getting ready to go on my shift and a police officer's gun accidentally went off and the bullet went through my neck and severed my spinal cord.
as assault weapons, may be unrealistic. this is according to a reid aide. again, i get back to harry reid really being the key point person to be able to take through feinstein's newly introduced bill and any other type of measures that the president would like to see put through the senate first. do you think, though, that harry reid being a pro-gun democrat, is the best person to helm this through the senate side? >> you were just talking about members of the house and senate in a vacuum, some of that may be true but i believe the president's strategy is the right one by going right to the american people and making the case that we need universal background checks eliminating the loopholes at gun shows that don't require background checks, going to the american people, talking about an assault weapons ban and also banning high capacity magazines, in an effort to continue to raise awareness, i'm sure the president will talk about this in the state of the union and to help build momentum, i'm organizing an effort with my colleagues, asking members of congress and the house anyway, to giv
this a news alert. senator harry reid calling for more tax increases. in an interview on abc yesterday, he said tax revenue must be part of any deal to be part of the little defense cuts. here is senator reid. >> the american people are on our side, and america people don't believe in these things. we believe the rich should contribute. stuart: relieve the rich should contribute, tax the rich. president obama pushing for more tax increases yesterday. in an interview on cbs before the super bowl he said there is no doubt that government needs new relation. he promises strong economic growth this year coming on the heels of an economic contraction in the fourth quarter along with the rise in the unemployment rate. and everybody's taxes already went up as of january 1, taxes may go up some more. from taxes to the market. the dow above 14,000 for the first time since 2007 friday afternoon. let's bring in nicole. it is not like it was going to hold at 14,000, now futures are down, how much are they down? nicole: you can see the down arrows, 69 points pulling back awfully 14,000 mark. traders ar
for joining us. >> if you a ask harry reid, americans don't believe in spending cuts. >> the american people are on our side. the american people don't believe in this austere things. >> my next guest says harry has it wrong and has the polls to prove it. says mounting debt is major concern for most americans. tell us about it, sir. the polls would say that harry has it all wrong, do they not? >> they do. and also when you were discussing the president, as you know hi is talking about gun control and talking about immigration but it is debt now, and the deficit, that are the number two item in several recent polls of public concern. so they have shifted their attention, maybe past the philosophy -- fiscal cliff debate got their attention but now they're worried about it. recent polls show if you give people a choice between spending cuts, including cutting services, or tax increases, they prefer spending cuts. so, harry reid has is wrong. >> we just put a full screen up there cutting services 49%. some people say that. increasing taxes, 80%. both equally, only 11. people are interesting in
to settle on passing background legislation and calling that a win. on abc over the weekend, harry reid pointedly would not commit to supporting an assault weapons ban. >> i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. i think everyone acknowledges we should do some background checks. >> reid said the senate would move the bill through the judiciary committee, it's unlikely to include a gun ban. though reid has said california senator dianne feinstein will have an opportunity to present the provision as an amendment once the bill reaches the senate floor. remember there's a whole bunch of red tape democrats want to actively cascade a vote against the assault weapons ban so they can show they are pro-gun. >> the super bowl ad new york city mayor's group ran in the d.c. market focused on one part of the gun control bills and that's the background check, one pointing out the nra at one time supported closing the gun show loophole. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory, instant criminal background checks for every sale at
to comment on to harry reid. this weekend talking about more taxes. he says, the american people are on his side. here he is. >> the american people don't believe in this bustier things. we believe that the rich should contribute. we believe we should fill those tax loopholes, get rid of them, i should say, and that is where we need to go. gerri: do you agree? >> no, i don't. john kennedy did not agree. ronald reagan did not agree. they did not agree back in the 1920's. it is never worked in the history of this country raising taxes to bring in more revenue. by the way, the revenue is projected for this year, over two and half trillion dollars. that's more than we took in last year, more than we took in in 2007 and 2008. it is always and has always been a spending problem in washington d.c. look at what is going on in california. wall street loves what california is doing, but remember, the people who voted to raise taxes in california made it retroactive, so what happened is nobody could do anything to get away from the extra increase in taxes, but now we have it here to work on that. let
and a universal background check. senate majority leader harry reid says he's thinking bin doresing the backed checks but he's not to too ke, n on a ban on assault weapons. martha: he suggested that might not good over too well with his constituents. thank you very much. >> more on that now. republicans not the only ones questioning gun control measures. even the senate's top democrat is not sold on the idea. senate majority leader harry reid says he's willing to push for mow extensive background checks but he's not sure if he'll actually vote to bana salt weapons and high capacity a ammunition magazines, take a listen. >> i didn't volt for the assault weapons last night because it didn't make sense. i'll take a look eight. we need to take a look at federal trafficking. i think that everyone acknowledges we should do background checks. >> reareid must strike a delicate balance while following the president's lead without alienating nevada's balance. >> a navy seal was gunned down thousands of miles from any battlefield. chris kyle and a friend were shot and killed at a gun range in texas over
the most extreme element in their own party through the primary processes, and that's why harry reid right now is running the senate. >> but there are -- i mean, you saw the front page of the business section of "the new york times" yesterday. there are people who want these assault weapons, and they're selling off the shelves at twice the price. twice the price. i was online looking at guns. it's unbelievable how they're marketed. people like them. people in america feel they need these multiple -- what's that? >> did you buy one? >> no, i was just trying to understand. i personally don't get it. but there is -- it's not just an extreme fringe tiny bit of society. there are people out there who support this. >> i tell you what. >> in our society. >> there aren't enough of those people out there that feel like they have to have an assault weapon to carry presidential elections or senate elections. >> there's enough to make gun manufacturers a lot of money, to make the gun lobby powerful, to make people like wayne la bpie e pierre -- >> think about the money he makes by ginning up fear in a
assault rifles the president will face tougher opposition even with his own power. harry reid would consider it but did not commit. >> i didn't vote for all the weapons last time because it didn't make sense. i will take a look at it. >> background checks and a greater focus on those with mental illness who battle mental illness. right now those are the areas that seem to be most likely as we are on capitol hill. >>> before his stop in minneapolis the president sat down with cbs yesterday for a pregame interview. >> despite last week's dismal economic numbers the president says he is confident the economy is on its way up. >> the reason the economy shrank a little bit despite manufacturing is going strong car sales are up. truth is, overall there were a lot of positives to the economy. the big problem is defense spending was cut 22 percent. it was the biggest drop in 42 years. it was very abrupt. it had to do with folks being worried about the possible impacts of the fiscal cliff and what goes on in washington. what i have said repeatedly is washington cannot continually operate und
about gun control legislation on the hill this time around. folks like senate majority leader harry reid who has been a long time progun ownership advocate under a lot of pressure to get some of these measures whether it's the one by senator dianne feinstein or others who are not viewed as restrictive what do you is you stall and you hope. the senate is good at doing. is not doing stuff. the hope for senate majority leader reid and other nra backed or progun democrats in the u.s. senate is play for time, have this work itself out. we see the bipartisan offer from joe manchin democrat from pennsylvania and republican from illinois background checks that you hope that some compromise position emerges. you can take ahold of that and get away from the issue. because i am sure that harry reid, ahead of having so many red state democrats up for re-election in 2014, is he not interested in doing a gun ban of any kind. i can't think that he would be because it would be so bad for some of his members and chances for remaining majority member. we are looking at the president departing from air for
bit hesitant? >> reporter: no doubt. harry reid, with george stephanopoulos on sunday on "this week," saying that he's not even con vinvinced on the af the president's plans. >> jonathan karl, thank you so much. >>> and now, we turn to your money and a big spike tonight in the price of gas. up 18 cents in one week. the average price now $3.54. and we also learned today americans now spend more of the family budget on gasoline than any time in the last four years. $2,912 a year and that's 4% of the family budget. >>> and now to an abc news exclusive, with the inspiring young girl targeted by the taliban. just because she wanted girls to go to school. tonight, malala yousafzai speaks. abc's bob woodruff has talked to her father, as well, about the fragile young girl full of so much passion and purpose. >> reporter: malala's journey from this to this is nothing short of a miracle. and today, for the first time, people heard her voice. >> today, you can see that i'm alive. i can speak. i can see you. i can see everyone. and i'm getting better day by day. it's just because of the prayers
hill is the assault weapons ban, something even the senate's top democrats, majority leader harry reid has not endorsed. >> i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> reporter: kelly says congress needs to pass the ban. >> i know the value of having an assault weapon. it's to kill a lot of people very quickly. i think there are -- i think they're way too readily available. >> reporter: lapierre says semiautomatic guns help keep america safe. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >>> president owe bap ma says the -- president obama says the boy scouts should be open to all boys, including those who are gay. the president praised scouting as an organization which offers opportunities and says no one should be excluded. >> the scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives. i think that nobody should be barred for that. >> we found out last week- - >> [indiscernible] -- banning gays from scouting. >>> 4:35 now

a budget by the first monday of february. senator harry reid said the gun legislation in the senate will include magazine size and background checks, but it would not seek a ban on military-style assault weapons. an amendment could be included to cover that. the president heads to minneapolis to discuss gun control. and the cost of the 2012 elections are in. the final price tag is estimated at $7 billion. according to the consumer confidence index, half the respondents said that the financial crisis went under the labour retirement plan. we are interested in hearing from you if the financial crisis delay your retirement. want to give us a call, the numbers are on your screen. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. if you want to reach out to us on social media, you can send us a tweet at twitter.com/c-spanwj. around 40 people so far responding on facebook. and you can send us an e-mail to journal@c-span.org. the survey that was mentioned talks a little bit about respondents' and what they were asked about as far as their retiremen

override -- harry reid yesterday said the nra is just one organization among many. we listen to them but that doesn't mean we follow them. can we override the nra on these background checks? will we this time? 866-55-press. one other gun-related item that caught my attention that i find disgusting, this headline in "the new york times," got the whole article because i clipped it, it bugged me so much the most wanted gun in america. you know what happened up in newtown connecticut on december 14th, this union gunman broke into sandy hill elementary school, takes out his ar 15, mos down 20 innocent 6 graders, some of them shot 10, 11 times action with that ar 15, also mowed down and killed six innocent teachers and supervisors there at that school the police say that's the weapon he used, the ar 15. so what did we do about it? what did americans do about that? did they turn in disgust at that weapon, that semi automatic assault rifle? did they say this good shall beould be banned because nobody needs a gun like that to defend himself or her family? we did the opposite
and for gun rights has been strong on both sides of the aisle including with senate majority leader harry reid, the top democrat in the senate. so, you know, again the key is going to be given some of the events over the last year and this push from the white house, will the president be able to convince senators like reid, like mark pryor from arkansas, like mary landrieu from louisiana, et cetera, to go along with the kinds of gun regulations they have not supported in the past and then once that happens, can he create pressure among house republicans? again i think where he might be able to get something done is with an expanded type of background check, banning assault weapons, i just see as a nonstarter completely. jon: david drucker from "roll call". david, good to have you on. thank you. >> thanks a lot. jenna: the pakistani girl who survived being shot in the head by the taliban is speaking clearly and has now released her own video statement. the brave teenager's message to the world, a show of resilience for you this monday next. >>> also last night's battle between the ravens and 49
